Mannequin Death Squad

Plucked from the same bustling underground scene in Melbourne that spawned Integrity favourites Valentiine come the wonderful, scuzzy, scary MANNEQUIN DEATH SQUAD.

We’ve been chasing the bastard offspring of The Melvins & Taylor Swift since their birth, and are blown away that they’re releasing their debut single “Sick” with us here at Integrity Towers.

Grab an exclusive listen to “Sick” via the Music Muso website right here.

Pre-order the single on iTunes before its June 10th release right here

Debut single by Ghosts Of Social Networks

GOSN_LovePotion_cover1GOSN_Mockingbirds_cover1

New Manchester band Ghosts Of Social Networks released debut AA single ‘Love Potion’ / ‘Mockingbirds’ through Integrity Records on 6th May 2016.

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors, Scott Matthews, Robert Plant, Paolo Nutini), ‘Love Potion’ is a dark tale of unrequited love and the use of alcohol to get close to someone. The ‘Mockingbirds’ on track 2 are those imitating celebrity culture rather than carving out their own identity.

Love Potion’ reflects influences from The National to The Jesus & Mary Chain and ‘Mockingbirds’ draws lyrically from Nick Cave whilst attempting to create “a miserable Northern Soul feel”, but the band’s intrinsic sound is still one which proudly captures an essential Manchester vibe.

Launched with an exclusive stream via the MusicMuso website, you can listen to ‘Love Potionhere and ‘Mockingbirdshere.

BUY NOW via iTunes here!

In addition to the deal with us on the label side, GOSN have signed with the our new publishing arm, Integrity Publishing.

‘Love Potion’ / ‘Mockingbirds’ was released digitally through all major download stores on 6th May 2016.

Valentiine gigging again

It’s been a great start to the new year at Integrity Towers to know that our favourite Aussie 3-piece are out road-testing new material in and around their home city of Melbourne.

After an extended lay-off while drummer Shelly recuperated from multiple fractures sutained in a motorbike crash, early reports suggest the Valentiine girls are well and truly BACK!

Their next gig is at A Day By The Green on Saturday 6th February 2016. Valentiine are on stage at 8pm, amongst a fantastic line-up.

There’s a new album slated for later this year but still time to pick up their superb debut either on CD from the Integrity mail-order store or on download via iTunes or Amazon MP3.
